March 13, 1986|United Press International

SAN DIEGO — An F-14A Tomcat jet bounced off an aircraft carrier deck during an attempted landing and crashed, but the two fliers aboard were able to eject from the crippled plane safely, the Navy said today.

The unidentified Navy pilot and radar-intercept officer were fished from the Pacific by a helicopter from the carrier Constellation after the accident Wednesday night. They were reported in good condition.
